Remarks: The Waldo Canyon fire has spread tremendously, and has been officially confirmed as the worst wildfire in Colorado History. On 6/26, the wildfire caused the Joint Line to shut down from thick smoke and possible spot fires near the tracks. In response, BNSF sent the Union Pacific 2 so called "Fire Trains" to spray water on the sides of the tracks to keep spot fires from consuming the rails. They're kept on standby until any fire by the tracks are reported, and these will be sent to put them out. As of 6/29/12, the Waldo Canyon fire is 15% contained, 16,750 acres, 346 homes burned, and one death.
